Last night on my way home I felt something like going over a bump except I only felt it in the saddle. I stopped and inspected it, and sure enough it was broken. The right saddle rail broke in half just ahead of the seatpost clamp. I put on a spare saddle when I got home. Getting home was no fun. I had to ride a broken saddle 3 miles. I seriously thought I was going to have to get off and walk, or call for a ride. The left rail held up just enough to get me home.
So, now its time for a new saddle. I'm seriously considering a sprung saddle. I am also seriously considering a brooks saddle, but I'm worried about my weight. I weigh 312lbs, and have heard of brooks saddles giving out.
So, can somoene suggest a saddle that'll do well?
